Urban Decay Slay

If there is one brand that really understands the mantra 'Go Hard or Go Home', it is Urban Decay and the beauty giant's latest launch embodies it. Urban Decay has created a new lipstick range called Vice. But we're not talking about a six, or even 12, shade collection...there are 100 of the motherfuckers and every one of them is to die for. Oh and did I mention that ultimate bad bitch Ruby Rose fronts the ad campaign?!

Weekly Worship: Sachajuan Thickening Shampoo & Conditioner

I hate washing my hair. Not because I'm a dirty bitch but because the dirtier & more loaded with dry shampoo my hair is, the thicker and better it looks. As you probably know by now, I have fine hair and it is at it's finest when freshly washed. I've tried using thickening shampoos and conditioners in the past, however I've never seen any benefits...until I discovered the Sachajuan Volume Shampoo & Conditioner...

The Tuesday Tip: DIY Salt Spray


Beach waves are the staple hairstyle of the summer; they look good on just about any bitch. However, as most of us aren't lucky enough to live by the beach or spend our summers in Saint-Tropez, we depend on salt sprays to achieve those gorgeous waves. Fake it until you fucking make it after all...

Ingredients 101: Squalane


WTF: Squalane is a derivative of squalene, a powerful natural substance that is found in olives, rice bran, wheat germ and palm trees. Importantly, squalene is also found naturally in our blood and skin, blessing us with protection and hydration. At birth, about 12% of our skin surface is made of squalene. However sadly its production begins to decline rapidly in our mid-to-late twenties. By 50, squalene production drops below 5% - yay to ageing. Squalane is derived from squalene through a process called hydrogenation; this process increases its shelf life and makes it more stable.

Beauty Benefits: Squalane is a hero skincare ingredient as it promotes skin elasticity, diminishes age spots and hyper pigmentation and promotes cell regeneration and oxygenation. The free-radical fighter also prevents UV damage, increases skin hydration and locks in moisture. It diminishes the production of excess oil, helps combat skin allergies, eczema, psoriasis and post-operative scar tissues and stimulates better blood circulation to rejuvenate skintone. It's basically the shit.
